Since the first edition of this book appeared in 1950, about three years after the death of the senior author, the present revision has been undertaken entirely by Windle. The book is designed primarily to acquaint beginning students with the fundamentals of histological structure and function. Controversial discussions are avoided for the most part, and the bibliography consists only of brief lists of collateral readings at the end of each chapter. The illustrations are numerous, clearly labeled, and excellently reproduced. The subject matter is clearly presented, and there is no small type. The material covered by this text, supplemented by classroom guidance, should be entirely adequate to meet the needs of first year medical students. The book is, however, too limited in scope and dogmatic in approach to serve as a review or a reference text for the advanced student.
